Loop 4: Northern Weekend Challenge (2 days)

Stages: 8-9Fri 6th - Mon 9th July
Cost: £450Fundraising: £800

This is going to be gorgeous. Flat as far as ASO and the pros are concerned but in reality (which we’ll stick with for now) lets call it nicely rolling! These two stages aren’t easy (they never are) but they’re very achievable and two Tour stages plus the cobbles come with major bragging rights. Ride with us from Chartres to Roubaix: you come for the French villages, you come for the peloton, you come for the perfect roads, you come for the Tour!

**This is a Team Marie Loop

The roads here are great with nice gradients, smooth tarmac and one obvious challenge that will make everyone feel like a cycling hero – just wait and see!
335km in two days? If you’re intimidated by cycling two back to back stages, this is the Tour Taster for you because with our support, you absolutely can.
